The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham:
Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah.
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations.
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born.
Now when John, while imprisoned, heard of the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples
Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Then He warned the disciples that they should tell no one that He was the Christ.
"What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?" They said to Him, "The son of David."
"Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ.
"For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.
"Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him.
But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, "I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God."
and said, "Prophesy to us, You Christ; who is the one who hit You?"
So when the people gathered together, Pilate said to them, "Whom do you want me to release for you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?"
Pilate said to them, "Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" They all said, "Crucify Him!"
